 Recent Police Activity (Extract from minutes of Rushcliffe South Priority Setting meeting)


  1. Cannabis growing

    Locally the police have been very successful apprehending those responsible for cannabis growing and drug related issues in Bingham, East Bridgford, Barnstone and Shelford.


    Cannabis growing in suburbs is soaring and Caroline asked that we inform residents to be on the lookout for clues, as local intelligence is critical to success in police raids.


    For example:

  2. Look out for people setting up shop - ventilation equipment, lighting equipment, grow-bags and soil

  3. Absence of tenants and their comings and goings at odd hours - They won't be sociable neighbours

  4. < > - Cannabis's odour is distinctively strong and sickly sweet

    Covered-up windows - pulled curtains or black-outs

  5. Strong Lighting  

  6. < > on windows, or unusual levels of heat coming from a property

    Used compost dumped by rubbish bins


    Report anything suspicious by calling 101.


  7. Drug problem, Shelford


    Caroline confirmed police had continued to successfully target Shelford (priority from June meeting). There had been a round-the-clock problem there and a lot of good criminal intelligence had been obtained.
